Why Mentoring Matters
Mentoring connects a person who has a wealth of knowledge, experience, and wisdom with someone who has not yet acquired the same knowledge or experiences. It has the power to transform lives and careers by creating positive, long-lasting effects in a variety of personal, academic, and professional environments. Research shows that effective mentoring relationships work to develop leadership skills, gain professional benefits, higher salaries, greater organizational commitment, and high satisfaction with both job and career. Furthermore, personal benefits, such as increases in self-confidence, and ease of work-life integration also stem from effective mentoring relationships.
For women entering or re-entering the workforce, making a career transition, or unsure of where to begin their career journey, a mentor can be of enormous benefit! The opportunity to discuss candidly and confidently concerns, difficulties, and aspirations with an experienced person make a profound difference in a woman’s career trajectory. Pass the Torch empowers women through mentoring, connecting, and investing in them throughout all stages of their career journey.
